Fish farming

Now technically known as "aquaculture", this is the rearing of fish for
culinary purposes in either fresh water lakes or steams, or in lochs or
tidal sea estuaries. In salt water conditions fish are reared in
suspended cages.

There is an increasing worry about the
conditions in which farmed fish are kept, and the effect of
agricultural and industrial pollutants on their health. See also
